Planning is currently underway for the League of Michigan Bicyclists to run six Community Safety for Bicycling Law Enforcement Trainings in 2014. This training is broken into two sessions that can be taken together or separately. The morning session will cover the laws pertaining to bicyclists as well as education, enforcement, and engineering topics. The afternoon session will teach participants how to run an effective bike rodeo. The trainings are open to law enforcement personnel and civilians.
Dates for the 2014 Trainings are being finalized, however host sites will be Norton Shores, Niles, Lansing, Traverse City, Sault Ste. Marie, and a TBD SE Michigan location. Watch LMB's website for dates on these trainings. Trainings will be conducted in April - June time frame.
Clubs, shops, organizations or individuals are encouraged to sponsor officers from your local police department to attend the trainings. This will not only help you or your group build a great rapport with your local law enforcement agency, but it will also provide important training concerning bicyclists rights under the law. The fees are set low on purpose with the morning training only costing $25.
